    I seriously wanted to like it because I utterly love the show... But it sure was a disappointment. Such a mediocre book. The best way to describe it is "feminist nonsense meets jungian mumbo jumbo". I was deseperately seeking to give it at least four stars (because "OYG, the show is soooo good"), but it has too many mistakes (grammar, orthography, typos, misnamed chatacters, you name it) which shows very poor editing. (Still two and half stars of my given score are especifically because of my obs I seriously wanted to like it because I utterly love the show... But it sure was a disappointment.

(Still two and half stars of my given score are especifically because of my obsession with the show.) I've counted 45 mistakes. (And I know there are many more.) At least it was a cheap book, so I didn't lose that much money. Much better works related to OB would be What We Talk About When We Talk About Clone Club: Bioethics and Philosophy in Orphan Black and/or The Science of Orphan Black: The Official Companion. (These two are dwell more on the science and ethics of cloning and not in feminist theory.)
